My rating: 3 of 5 stars
With a large cast, the story spanned so many years, I had a little trouble keeping track of the convoluted relationships between the slaves and their owners. Told between alternating points of view helped anchor the story and bring it depth. Lies, misunderstandings and cruelty abounded. The parts of the story that held the most weight for me were the fierce loyalties and the longing for family between the characters who all experience loss.
